Being equipped with proper defense tactics is vital to establishing control and defending oneself in assaults. The PPCT Defensive Tactics Instructor course is the first subject control system developed through tactical, legal, and medical research. Tactically, the system addresses the most common types of resistance that law enforcement personnel encounter, ensuring that participants learn job-related techniques pertaining to self-defense. Legally, the PPCT System teaches a simple use of force continuum which clarifies the appropriate force level for every level of resistance. Medical research has been conducted on every PPCT technique to refine technique efficiency and to ensure that medical implications are proportional to the level of resistance.
This course meets Texas Commission on Law Enforcement (TCOLE) requirements PPCT Instructor Course #21013.
